Lot Description
1875-S 20C MS64+ NGC. Bold Mintmark. The lower reverse has extensive peripheral die cracks. The extensive production of 1875-S twenty cent pieces resulted in several distinct varieties. Most well known is the "$" mintmark variety with the S doubled, the first entry leaning to the left and the second upright. That variety also has a misplaced date obverse, with the top of a 5 visible in the denticles below the 7. The "$" mintmark variety is listed in The Cherrypickers' Guide as FS-302. None were found in the present Kansas Bank hoard. Rich and consistent tobacco-brown and jade-green toning intermingles throughout this lustrous and nicely struck near-Gem.
